We have got J2EE 1.3 EJB 1.2 application has been deployed as single EAR in Websphere Application Server 6.1 horizontal cluster. Now how we want add webservice using existing EJB in the same EAR build so that other Java / J2EE application will consume this service.
My advice is to take a look at the appropriate EJB specification documents to determine whether there is support for exposing EJBs as web services or not and, if so, how to do it.
I am not able to find anything about being able to expose an EJB as a web service in the EJB 2.0 specification, but such information exist in the EJB 2.1 specification.
